Charles Sanders Peirce's Pragmaticism and Praxis of Adult Learning Theory: Signs, Interpretation, and Learning How to Learn in the Post-Modern Age.
Stanage, Sherman M.
Thresholds in Education, v20 n2-3 p10-17 May-Aug 1994
Charles Sanders Peirce's phenomenological investigations throughout his lifetime led to discovery of his theory of semiotics and created both his earlier pragmatism and his later pragmaticism. After briefly discussing postmodernists' themes, description, and critiques of Western culture, this article shows how Peirce's theory of signs and pragmaticism constitute a powerful antidote to postmodernist theories and practices.
